Number 33 Birthday Beetle
Frame size cm: 23.5 W, 32 H, 4 D
Metallic detail: mixed gilding
Faux glass in frame: no
A truely beautiful stag beetle, shining with luscious glazes, mounted in a modern frame. This is a very special birthday beetle, inspired by life on my 33rd Birthday. 2020 has been a bad year, and I have found myself craving parties, bunting, confetti and cake sprinkles. This 33rd birthday beetle embodies all I miss right now.
The piece is inspired by the antiquarian practice of Entomology collection. This contemporary twist on the practice is entirely cruelty free, as all specimens are handmade from clay. The framed specimens look very striking on a wall or displayed on a shelf. Each piece is signed and dated. The frame can be wall mounted with a screw or picture hook. It also has an arm, so can stand as a photo frame would.
